With his new longplayer "Globus Cassus", Tobias Lorsbach connects to the mysterious world of retro futurism. influenced by authors like Stanislaw Lem and his philosophical excourses into the field of artificial intelligence, Keinzweiters music is a lush journey into the world of lost data and modular synthesis. reassembling the patterns of life in all its complexity is unattainable for mankind - "Globus Cassus" is a kind of aural statement to this uncertainty. With itÃÂ´s outlandish deepness, the avoidance of simple hooklines it is more asking questions than giving answers, echoing the last 5 decades of electronic music and the existencial questions connected to the topic man vs machine.

Still picking myself up from the floor...
Fantastic song structure and melodies, it takes traditional house sounds and cuts them all to bits, assembling them in a methodical and beat-conscious pattern. Effects drift in and out, noises appear and then vanish quickly. It makes me wonder what Pink Floyd would do if they'd been born in the 80s.
While this scientific idm is all wonderfully taking place, the songs have another side-- there is an underlayer of the sunny beach sound of the early 2000s. Did Keinzweiter smash up a bunch of old Naked Music records and sonically rearrange them???
However it happened-- it works. Beautifully.
The combo of these 2 distinct styles make this one of the most unusual(and great)releases I've heard lately. Give it a listen.
I wish I could give it more stars...
